Can beak and feather desease be passed on to eggs? I have a pair of lorikeets that I have sent away samples for testing and they have since laid eggs. If the teat comes back positive,will the eggs also be positive?

PBFD does pass to eggs
by: The Avian Vet

Yes, there is vertical transmission of PBFD virus; i.e. It is passed inside the egg as well as on the shell.
